Penguins Win V Capitals

PITTSBURGH — Nick Bonino put a rebound past Braden Holtby 6 minutes 32 seconds into overtime, giving the Pittsburgh Penguins a 4-3 win over the Washington Capitals on Tuesday night and wrapping up the teams’ hotly contested Eastern Conference semifinal series in six games.

The Capitals had rallied from a three-goal deficit during the final 22 minutes of regulation, but Bonino’s second goal of the playoffs sent the Penguins to the Eastern Conference finals against Tampa Bay.

Holtby made the initial stop on Carl Hagelin, but Bonino, camped right outside the crease, tapped in the winner.

Washington forward Jay Beagle made a remarkable save from his belly against Patric Hornqvist early in overtime, but there was no stopping Bonino’s tap-in.
